We have been notified that work to remove old analog equipment from the KING 5 transmitter tower will occur on two consecutive dates this week.

Weather permitting, the next transmitter shutdowns will be late-night Wednesday, March 27 (actually early  Thursday morning) and late-night Thursday, March 28 (actually early Friday morning). Work is expected to last until 4:30 AM Thursday & Friday.

Sign-off will be at 12:30 AM for the Live Well Network as well  as KONG TV.

For KING, shut down will be immediately after the Tonight Show with Jay Leno (approx. 12:37 AM).

You will lose your KING and  KONG signal during the times noted above.
